Intolerant Friend Cookies

Well, really cookies for friends with food intolerances…

These cookies are free from wheat, dairy, egg and soy. So if you have vegan friends and friends with food allergies (except nuts – I can’t help you there), then these are a really good option. Despite being free from traditional ingredients they are still really tasty.



1 1/2 cups almond meal
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarb soda
1/4 cup cocao nibs (or chocolate pieces)
1/3 cup cranberries

1 tbs ground flax (or 1 egg)
4-6 medjool dates
1tbs coconut butter (or nut butter, oil, or real butter)
1tsp vanilla

1. mix the ground flax with 3 tbs of water, leave in the fridge for 15 minutes
2. soak the dates in hot water for 15 minutes
3. mix the dry ingredients
4. mix the wet ingredients in a blender including a little of the water from the dates until it blends well
5. mix wet into dry
6. on a baking tray make small balls from the dough then flatten slightly with a fork (they won’t spread when baking)
7. bake at 180 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until slightly browned at the edges
